Acne scars can be an annoying reminder of painful blemishes from the past. Scars are a form of skin texture, and to improve them you have to improve your skin from within. Professional skin treatments with the right technology are the best way to improve the appearance of facial scarring.

If you’re looking for a treatment designed to improve acne scars, look no further than a Micropen treatment in Martinsburg. This microneedling treatment creates thousands of controlled micro-injuries to the skin to kickstart your skin’s natural wound healing process. The result is collagen production and skin reparation to smooth the outer surface.

The Micropen EVO Process.

What to Expect?

Consultation.

Before your microneedling treatment, you'll meet with Dr. Bowen for a skin consultation. He'll review your skin concerns and desired results to determine if this is the best treatment for your needs.

Treatment.

Your provider will prep your skin by cleaning it and then applying a topical numbing cream. Once the treatment area is numb, your provider will begin microneedling your skin, making several 'passes' to ensure the best results.

Results.

You will enjoy the immediate glow this treatment gives your skin, and your results will progress over the course of several weeks. Results continue to improve for several months after treatment.

Pre-Treatment

  • For the remainder of the day, avoid clothing on the treated area (i.e., hats, scarves, headbands, or any other clothing). If you can’t avoid it, then use only cotton clothing that hasn’t been treated with fabric softener or dryer sheets.
  • If you are prone to cold sores, continue medication for 5 days after treatment.
  • For discomfort, you may take acetaminophen (i.e., Tylenol, Advil).
  • After 4 hours, you may use your normal skincare products except retinoids and exfoliating products.
  • Try to avoid sun exposure

Post-Treatment

Three to five days after treatment, or once the skin is no longer sensitive or peeling:

  • You may resume retinoid use.
  • You may resume the use of alpha-hydroxy acids (e.g., lactic acid, glycolic acid, malic acid).
  • You may resume the use of salicylic acid.
  • You may resume the use of scrubs and exfoliating products.
